Shane

God is gracious
ORIGIN: Irish
POPULARITY: 610
Shane has certifiable Irish roots, but it has some cowboy in him too, thanks to a 1953 Wild West movie of the same name. Though it’s considered unisex (Erika Christensen of “Parenthood” gave the name to her daughter in 2016), there are far more Shane baby boys than girls. It’s a name that has a ton of variations for both sexes, including Shawn, Sean, Shayne, Shannon and Shana. Famous “cowboys” include Shane West of “Salem” and Shane Larkin of the Boston Celtics.
